Evolution FX-P from TIBHAR is the most flexible and soft version of the EVOLUTION rubber family. This rubber confers a lot of sensation and control in any playing situation. FX-P is a high-performing rubber proven by the enormous sound resulting from topspin strokes. The rubber surface is rich in spins and its soft sponge with high catapult effect gives the sufficient power necessary for a variable topspin game. The player who likes to attack near the table and is not willing to concede any ball while playing a risky game will be delighted by the fine tuning of the rubber surface with the soft sponge of the EVOLUTION FX-P.
PRO-TENSION rubber surface is grippy and rich in spin, with perfect elasticity and stability.
RED POWER SPONGE is bright red, open porous, and spectacular. Adapts perfectly to the situation.

Reviews of Tibhar Evolution FX-P (24)
Currently using/testing this on a few all wood blades, including the Tibhar Lebesson blade. This is a really nice medium/soft controlled rubber at 40 hardness. It's slightly on the softer side of medium/soft, with good speed, being between R37 and R42 (say 8.8), or close to Vega Europe. This has become my new favorite 'FX' rubber, with high enough throw angle for most situations, and great control, providing you're familiar with a bit of Tensor catapult effect. Spin is good on well struck loops, but obviously not quite as extreme as the 'S' versions of the evolution series. Close to Rakza 7 Soft, but faster, and feels very slightly harder and dwellier, so to speak.
Outstanding soft rubber. I used it on forehand and backhand and it will no dissapointed me. Seems like no speed because its control is outrageous but wiht energie enough agressice strokes are quite fast. Very good for serves despites isnt a tacky rubber. Block is veary easy and countertopspin not bad at all. I truly recommend it. A very complet rubber. Perfect for backhand.
Una goma espectacular con un sonido al golpear un contra topspin bastante agradable.
Es rpida, no ms que la MXP pero con un poco ms de efecto. Buena durabilidad.
A very nice, soft, and controllable rubber. Good overall spin with wonderful dwell time. A satisfying kind of 'THOCK' sound when attacking can be heard screaming out from this rubber. The soft sponge allows for somewhat padded, linear blocking. On the flipside, it's not as BULLET directed as some other rubbers are in that area. You are sacrificing some speed for ease of use and consistency with FX-P.
Plays similarly to tenergy 05 fx. There is a noticeable difference between them, so certainly not a replacement rubber. But having said that, if you're John Club playing at the local table tennis spots -- odds are, you've got a bit of a pot belly, no real footwork, and poor stroke mechanics. This rubber will suit you fine! Absolutely fine, forgiving in all aspects of the game.
Tenergy is kind of like learning to drive in a formula 1 car... FX-P is more like a honda -- not too flashy, but you'll get from A to B with few errors along the way. And for most people, they may not "like" FX-P as much as tenergy, yet dollars to donuts they'll play better using FX-P!
When new is very fast, after a 2-3 months it shrinks a lot, small decrease on speed but increases control.
The surface is very slippery, you must engage the sponge and fast strokes to get some spin... so is not good for flicks or chopping.
The edges of these rubber do not desintegrate like Tenergy! wow I've used it for 11 months straight and not a single crack on topsheet.
It's best used on forehand as log as it used actively and aggresive to get some decent speed.
If you want to replace Tenergy go for the EL or MX versions. Remember to cut it bigger when gluing beacuse of shrinkage overtime

The Tibhar Evolution FX-P is clearly the softest of the six Evolution rubbers and also the lightest at 46 grams cut to the 157 x 150 mm test blade. However, it feels significantly harder than other 40-degrees rubbers, such as the Gewo nanoFLEX FT40, and is only one gram lighter than the significantly harder-sponged Nittaku Fastarc C-1, Gewo nanoFLEX FT45, and Donic Acuda Blue P1.
Used this on BH of 5-ply allwood OFF- blade for several months. The aspects that really stood out with this rubber were the fantastic control, easy to access spin, and great sensation. Easy to block, counter, or open up with wide margin of error. I can take big strokes from close to the table with 100% confidence. Feels similar to 05FX.
Only drawbacks are of course that the top end speed is not very fast, and you'll reach that peak rather easily. Also, i felt that the liveliness of the rubber quickly degrades. After a month or so the speed seemed to drop off considerably. Takes a bit of effort to get your attacking shots deep onto the table.
A controversial rubber.
+: unbelievable control. very good spin
-: very strange behavior in blocking. it takes a lot of time to get used to it
Good BH rubber. Medium soft, not too heavy. Easy to block with and hit. Not too fast but can produce some impressive speed. I like that the rubber is light compared to MXP and Tenergies but it doesnt produce enough spin with the Pball. Maybe FX-S would be an improvement on it.
A very good backhand-rubber, too slow for backhand in my opinion, but the loops on my backhand have never been better. It has great control, accuracy and spin, and I can loop very well off the table as well, I've got max thickness, but a con for me is the blocking aspect of this rubber.. when ballon-blocking, i can just NEVER hit the table with this rubber, it bouncess so oddly because of the soft sponge i reckon, though for controlling drive-blocks close to the table, it's nice as well.. All in all a very good rubber, bar the blocking mid-far distance.
Excellent BH rubber amazing control with rly nice spin and speed Recomended!
Grate rubber for Bh i am using Timoboll Alc its good looping rubber with a strong spin and the control this rubber its great with a carbon blade ,the speed its really good .
This is an excellent rubber for BH. Play with it in a TIBHAR Ikarus ALX (OFF-) blade an it turnsout fantastically. It has great control. Nice opennings. Very good pushes. Great rubber!
Nice feel, control, and spin without sacrificing too much speed. I'm using this rubber on my BH and all of my backhand loops almost landed perfectly.
I think this rubber really has the same feel as tenergy 05-fx series with a much cheaper price.
Excellent rubber for a looper who wants control as well as the speed to finish a point. Got it in 2.0mm on my backhand and if you're moving up from a rubber like energy x-tra it can take a couple training nights to adjust. This rubber has very good control considering it's quite fast and the spin is good too. Looping backspin from my backhand is easy and I can really get pace on the ball if I whip my hand a little. Short play at the night is a dream and flicking is easy enough. Blocking is of sound quality and you can go a meter or two back from the table and still play easily. Definitely for the modern attacker looking to put some consistency and spin into his game.
Previously playing with grips and then with barracuda big slam I find with evo fxp a real progression in loops and control.
Never experience such play around the table. Spin is greater than all I have tried before (max) and speed is quite like barracuda and greater than big slam.I find more angle and spin than ELP.
My prefered rubber now for 18month
Rubber is still as performant as a new barracuda after 1 year of use (3 times a week!).
I play it on my backhand in the 2.1 mm thickness. I used Tenergy 05 before trying Tibhar Evolution FX-P. I find the FX-P better for my controlled, spin, counter-attack and finesse style of play. Control, spin and precision are much better than Tenergy. Opening loops, pushes and blocks are superb, crisp, spin-laden and precise. Just point and place the ball where you are looking. It receives serves very well and just is an all-round better value. I can't find any fault or weakness with this rubber. Outstanding job by Tibhar.
